Oh. Holy. Crap.

  1. I know! It looks so good. :) I've loved sharing it with my students all day today. Nothing better than proving to them, once again, that almost every fabulous movie actually came from a great book!

  4. I really, really, really, (and many times over) hope it doesn't suck.

    Not a fan of whoever it is they picked for Gale and Peeta.

    haha, i'm with the 'almost' criers. Watched it at least 5 times already, here to say I still have to fight back the waterworks toward the end of the trailer

  7. I'm with the full on criers. This looks like it's going to be spectacular.

    I don't understand all the people who are whining about the casting. People always whine about the casting until they see the movie and then they get over it. Personally, I think the casting is perfect. No, it's not who I saw "in my head." But how can it be?

  8. I've watched this 3x in the past 24 hours. I'd watch it more but the phones keep ringing at work. :D I'm very excited for this movie!

  9. Seriously, I am just SO happy with it. Gale, especially, is very similar to how I pictured him.

  10. This movie looks awesome. I am excited to see it.

    It even inspired me to create a list of upcoming YA Fantasy book based movies on my blog!

    The Hunger Games made my list!

  12. Becky, oh, I hadn't thought of that! Good for you. I bet that's been a blast.

    Sandy, I really think she is as well. Can't wait to see her in action.

    Mari, gives you chills, doesn't it?

    Laura, me, too. Me, too.

    Alexa, lol!

    Camie, does it? That's awesome, I love that! I really think it looks spectacular.

    librarian, lol. I hear ya. It's going to be very emotional.

    Diana, exactly. I just put aside what my mental images from the book and give the film its own chance to wow me. And frankly I'm already wowed. So exciting!

    Alicia, hehe. No shame. I'm about to watch it again right now. :)

    Janssen, I love hearing that. And I'm glad. Can't wait to see the full length film.

    R.J., it really does. I'll have to check out your list for sure. Sounds great.

    Matt, LOL. Haymitch, right? ;)

  13. I thought I was just hormonal and pregnant, cause I shed full on tears too, but I guess that's the norm! I was not expecting that flood of emotion!

  14. Aww dammit it looks really good!

  15. Liza, I completely understand. That brief shot of Rue killed me.

    Holly, right?!

  16. I was seriously on the fence with going to the theater to see this (I loathe the theater) but man, now I don't know how I can avoid it. Still bummed on the Lenny Kravitz casting but I'll have to learn to deal.

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
